Northern Lights Run powered by Orkusalan is cancelled

The Northern Lights Run powered by Orkusalan is a race  held in collaboration with the Winter Festival in recent years.  The race has grown the last years and is a great event for friends and families to enjoy running together and light up the darkness with lights and music, with a spectacular show. 

Unfortunately, it is not possible to have an event of this magnitude in the beginning of February, because of Covid-19, so it has been decided to cancel the race this year. 

In 2023 the race will be held on February 4th and hope that people can join us next year when conditions have improved. The terms of the race, which you agreed to upon registration, offer options if the race does not take place. All registered participants in the Northern Light Run powered by Orkusalan in 2022 will receive an email at the end of next month where they can decide on the next steps regarding paid participation fees.

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward seeing you next year!
